    From the Workshop Manual section 26.10.01 Coolant drain and refill

    I've been getting along well with the workshop manuals. However, I don't recognize this illustration.
    Where is this plug on the engine block? I would imagine it would be somewhere near the bottom but is it on the front or the back? Drivers side/Passenger side?

    Maybe my eyesight is poor but I just don't see anything resembling this plug.

    Answer to my question - Found it

    This picture should be rotated 90 degrees. It is not vertical as illustrated.

    The actual drain plug is a 13mm bolt and is situated horizontally on the front facing surface of the engine block--towards the radiator.

    Its location is directly above the front catalytic converter.
